” Karachi Bus.Y.ness “
Since I am here in Karachi, all I see is that People just busy in their business, so if Karachi Bus.Y.ness returns to normal, it doesnít surprise me.
Whether it be an earthquake, bomb blast, curfew, strike or anything out of ordinary it actually seems norm of Karachi.
I remember talking to my friends of KU, whenever they tell me that KU was closed for a week coz of firing, or any other type of disturbance, my reply to them is ìOkay, you mean the Usual of KU??î, coz thatís what Iíve been hearing about KU from the students of 1975 to 2005!!
And I still remember my first strike in Karachi, when I went out in the morning for my university and saw tires burning on the roads, it all looked fascinating to me. But to my disappointment, I found out 2/3rd of Karachiites were resting in homes, where it shouldíve been something normal for them anyway.
The prominent thing to notice is the sentiments of the people, which is the only thing they can show on such events. No doubt Pakistanis are Emotional, and Karachiites double emotional, they do react but donít act!
And then again, things get back to normal, coz people have their own things to do, while students stay busy in their colleges, and men in their business and offices, women shop!!
Days pass by quickly, when day turns into evening, and then into night, itís hard to track!
Itís but Natural. Thatís how Allah has made it. If we donít tend to forget, our minds will explode, and nothing would be normal ever again, nor weíll be able to do anything else. Weíve to live our livesÖ and Life goes on!!! [& on, & on, & on…]
P.S: Sorry for the harsh notes, but thats just what I observed!
